I've been experimenting with making whistles. The 4-tone train whistle on the right is a bit rough around the edges but not bad for a first attempt. The ones on the left are single tone. The bigger ones are 19mm (3/4") pine dowel and about 10cm (4") long. The smaller one is made from 12mm (1/2") tassie oak square dowel. Want to try making some slide whistles too.
I hope to have a few different ones of these made in time for my first market day in July. A simple to make item that doesn't cost much.

The whistles are beautifully crafted. I have loved whistles since I was a little kid but my mother did not share my enthusiasm!

My Dad taught me to make whistles from willow twigs when I was very young. I had a great time with them.

I could be completely wrong, but I think you should try making these from tone woods like they use for musical instruments.

The colors is a nice touch.
